The Seibu Lions are releasing "Lions Recipes" supervised by the Lions' nutritionist, who supports players' performance from a "food" perspective, on the Lions official website and the team's official Twitter page.
This is part of the "WE ARE ONE Project at Home" launched to encourage the team and fans to overcome the challenges together. The project was planned together with the baseball team's nutritionist in the hope that people who are spending more time at home due to the spread of the new coronavirus and those who are concerned about their health will enjoy cooking and eating a well-balanced meal.
The first recipe is "Curry Pilaf with Mackerel and Mushrooms. Mackerel and mushrooms (buna shimeji mushrooms) are rich in vitamin D, which is said to be a perfect ingredient for building strong bones.
In addition to the recipe video, "Leo's Hitokuchi Memo" introduces how to arrange the dish. Even people who do not usually cook much and parents and children can easily make this dish. Comments from pitchers Yutaro Watanabe and Koki Matsuoka, who actually ate this menu at the Wakamishi dormitory, are also included.
The Lions' unique recipe, supervised by a nutritionist, will be published five times. The "WE ARE ONE at Home Project" page also includes a "Play at Home Project" and an "Original Virtual Background".
